The NBA Finals Game 6 between the Suns and Giannis Antetokounmpo led Bucks went down to the final 12 minutes with both the teams at 77 points. It was a brutal back-and-forth between a team trying to lift its first title in 50 years and another looking forward to staying in the series.

Now, the positive with the Bucks was that they had a Hulk in their unit and he was all Green throughout the Tuesday night. The Freak scored almost half of the team’s total points and helped the Bucks win the NBA Finals 105-98 with flying colors.

Giannis Antetokounmpo became the only player after Shaquille O’Neal (2001) to drop 40+ points, 10+ rebs, and 5 blocks in a playoff game. He also scored his playoff high when it mattered the most and impacted the game from every which way possible.

As a result, even LeBron James, a die-hard Chris Paul supporter, could not stop himself from praising the Freak. 

Apart from him, the names like Kendrick Perkins, CJ McCollum, Ja Morant and others also joined the party –

Giannis was such a bombardment over the Suns that he had more points than Chris Paul (26) and Devin Booker (19) combined. With as many as five blocks to his name, the Freak was a weapon of mass destruction for the Bucks. Just imagine Giannis FMVP Antetokounmpo going 17/19 from the free throw line and shutting his haters for once and for all.

Aditionally, one must not forget the clutch contribution from Khris Middleton who scored in those final minutes when Devin Booker was mostly choking from the other end. Khris added 17 points to the tally and proved his pressure-handling abilities.

To sum up, it was a crazy show of domination from the Bucks who won as the underdogs coming into the series. What do you want to add in your praise for the Bucks? Please write it down in the comments and let us know.
